The Assistant Minister for Social Services, Hon Alan Tudge MP, has opened nominations for the 2016 Australian Disability Enterprise Excellence Award. The Australian Disability Enterprise Excellence Award recognises employers who offer meaningful work and support to people with significant disability and showcase innovative business practices.
Nominated Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs) will be judged on criteria such as achieving best practice, innovative training opportunities, strong wage outcomes and safe working conditions, as well as enhanced social inclusion and economic participation for their employees with disability.
The Award acknowledges the dual focus of ADEs as distinctive businesses and as high-quality employment services for people with disability. If you know of an ADE that has assisted people with disability to attain their full potential in employment, please nominate them for the 2016 ADE Excellence Award.
The winner will be announced at the NDS Disability at Work – Framing the Future Conference held at the National Convention Centre in Canberra on 30-31 May 2016.
The deadline for nominations is 5pm (AEST) Friday 8 April 2016.
